The writers of the Simpsons don't really settle on a reason as to why Homer is dumb.
** Homer apparently has a significantly smaller than average brain[[note]]though maybe not as small as the page picture; that'd be unrealistic even for ''The Simpsons'', and it is not ([[DependingOnTheWriter (usually)]] the reason for Homer's stupidity.[[/note]]. This enables him to resist blows to the head more easily than normal people (also helps that he has a significantly thicker than average skull), which had great effect in his brief career as a professional boxer.

* The Koala has a brain like this. Its brain used to fill the whole cranial cavity, but when it adapted to a diet of eucalyptus leaves (which are very low in nutrients), its brain shrank. It now resembles two shriveled walnut halves on top of the brain stem.

* ''TheAmazingColossalMan'': The eponymous character had a heart that didn't grow as fast as the rest of him, which led to him having constant chest pains. A scientist claimed this was because the [[YouFailBiologyForever human heart was one giant cell]]. * In ''OsmosisJones'', the kid who does the project on oyster filtration (which he just started the morning of the science fair) is mentioned by Ms. Boyd as having a brain the size of a tangerine.

* ''RenAndStimpy'': Stimpy's bean-sized brain [[WhoEvenNeedsABrain accidentally falls off when he leans down]]. Ren's cousin Sven marvels at how ''big'' it is, and then shows Stimpy his own, pinhead-sized brain. * ''PinkyAndTheBrain'': In the TitleSequence, the two eponymous characters walk behind an X-ray machine. Brain's skull has meshing gears, while Pinky's has a peanut. * ''TheSimpsons'': Mr. Burns' heart has been shown as a shriveled black lump that beats every now and again. Additionally, after crawling out from beneath a landslide, Mr. Burns tilted his head and banged his ear in hope of clearing out the gravel from his other ear. The gravel came flying out that ear, along with his walnut-sized brain.

*** If a HalloweenEpisode outtake is to believed, Homer has no brain. A demon went bowling with his head. His head cracked open and inside was a note "I.O.U. One Brain. Signed God."

* ''Oh No! It's an Alien Invasion'' has the Brainlings, a race of aliens with brains in jars on their heads. Most of them have brains that are small compared to humans', with their leader Emperor Brainlius -- the dumbest of them -- having the smallest. Brainlius' assistant Briiian has the largest brain -- larger than any human's -- and he's the smartest.
